Why is Okung a Pro Bowler? Seahawks have faced 10 players with 10-plus sacks, including Aldon Smith twice, allowing just 5 sacks to those 10

Outstanding... totally erased top pass rushers this year. Got the recognition he deserves. And once you get in the Pro Bowl as an offensive lineman, you tend to stay there. Just ask 2008 Walter Jones, Pro Bowler.

Thats awesome. That means that a ton of coaches and players voted for him, because he got pretty much nil on the fan vote.

I was pretty nervous after that first Arizona game, but he really elevated his game after that and has been fantastic ever since. Well deserved.

I agree Clink, he actually looked bad to start the season but about game three or four he turned it on and hasn't turned it off since.

Great to see him get recognized.

:13: He got healthy and his play the rest of the season was Pro Bowl level no doubt. Here's to big Russ staying healthy the remainder of his career.

Okey destroys defensive players. He throws them around and laughs and laughs and laughs. All day long. We've got the second leading rusher in the NFL. We can rush on anybody. Weren't the Niners first against the rush? This not by accident. Just watch the huge goddamn holes our oline rips in the defense.

To replace a Hall of Famer with Russell Okung is a sign of a blessed franchise.

Yes! Way to continue the tradition of left tackle domination, Russell O!

PC & JS hit the first pitch out of the park, eh?

Seriously. With all the other news on the day regarding Sherman, this kind of gets lost in the shuffle. Congrats to the man, he's persevered through a lot to get to this point. Everyone wondered if we'd ever see another Walter Jones and while we probably won't, we've gotta love Okung for being Russell Okung. Which is a damn fine player.

Funny how people ragged on him and Leon Washington and now they're both Pro Bowlers.

Okung and Unger are both very worthy of the recognition. Nice work boys!
